Al

You cannot take that off me Wales were robbed by a stupid decision from a very experienced Referee. They would have hammered the French with a full 15.

Penalty, yellow card may be but a sending off never! Robbed and I normally hate the Welsh rugby team.

Ditto Mac.

Football fans note, technology available in rugby. But only if the ref uses it.

Unlucky Wales you were robbed.

I am not a great Welsh rugby fan but after that ridiculous decision found myself willing them on to victory. Got to kick your penalties though.

Sadly guys our home Nation involvement is now finished as we all know in rugby the refs decision is final, wrong or right they call it as they see it and the players and fans accept it unlike the soccer players who argue the toss in a most disgraceful way

Remember theres all ways next time

I agree tigger. The sad part was when i notice the Welsh srum half was refusing to shake hands with French players, after the match. Sour grapes.

New Zealand are home and hosed noo. :roll: :roll:

Jonah that is now 3 beers you owe me.

Mac, the rules of the game clearly state that it is dangerous play to lift someone of his legs, the ref had no choice but to march him, they also missed 6 kicks at goal, 18 points, that would have won the game.
however having said that i was actually willing them on to win, they will clearly be installed as one of the favourites in 4 years time.
watched the All Blacks destroy the Aussies, depending what French team turns up, it could be interesting.

Right the final All Blacks to Batter the Le Frogs. (probabaly by record score)

I concede I owe you three beers and will stump up next time we meet I am sure you will not forget (I am good for it)

Keep up the great banter

Cheers Trev

What a cracking game!!

I almost feel sorry for the French they put up a great challenge and had their kickers kicked it would have been a day or three of mourning in New Zealand.

I believe the French Coach got his team selection totally wrong throughout the World Cup and it was only early injuries in this game that the best team played. Much the same can be said of Johnson and his team selections over the 5 games England played.

A good end to a good Tournament; look out for Argentina next world cup, their playing in the Four Nations, with New Zealand, Australia and South Africa will do wonders for their game, bound to be the whipping boys for the first three years but then watch out.

Enjoyed the banter: Meeks, Lawrie, Trev & Al, sometimes we got it right but mostly we were miles off!!

Cheers

Mac

The tension was unbelievable, kept looking at the clock which didn't seem to move!
All in all I think the best team overall just nicked it.
Phew :wink:
